It's not the point who fake news more ...the point is that journalists betrayed us normal citizens ..and the constitution is protecting them in 1st
amendment ....objective and real journalism is dead ,especially in big media ...thanks God for internet.
A very interesting and telling statement, which just made me realize something even more clearly: freedom of the press, the first amendment, and an
informed citizenry are integral to democracy. Without knowledge, without education, without as much transparency, a prosperous nation is doomed to
become slaves and the citizens become zombies.
objective and real journalism is dead ,especially in big media
This is the main reason i decided to pursue journalism: there needs to be a reaffirmation of integrity and ethics in journalism (which Fox clearly
neither has nor wants), and since the news outlets are corporate owned, controlled and operated to fulfill their own political agendas, what better
way to maintain control than to blatantly lie to the ignorant masses who watch and to control and manipulate said agenda through the media and to pit
left against right and vice versa. They are using our own necessities against us.
If freedom of the press is integral to (a nation's) prosperity through informing the masses, what better way than to manipulate journalism to inform
the masses of one's agenda.
Obvious, as most of us know, controlling the flow of information, and the information itself, makes journalism an accomplice in the larger goals of
those in power, which is to not properly educate the citizens. Therefore, they have found a way for journalism to work against its intent, against the
concerns of the people, as use it as the powerhouse it is for their own agendas.
It's a force unto itself at control, rather than freedom and education. This makes me sad.
Control the media, control the populace (as most are too ignorant to look further than what they are fed). Hitler would be proud.
As we all well know (and not that there is anything new in this post of mine), but something just clicked when i read the quoted post: that they have
found a way to use one of our fundamental rights for their own interests, and against us.
(Mass) Journalism MUST have integrity, for the sake of us all.
We must demand it. Somehow.
